Quick Overview

The revolt command in Europa Universalis IV is used to intentionally trigger a rebellion in a specified province.

When you enter this command followed by the province ID, a revolt will start immediately in that province.

This can be useful if you want to weaken an enemy by causing internal strife or if you are seeking to change your nation's governance or religion through a rebellion.

In-Depth Description

The revolt command in Europa Universalis IV is used to instigate a rebellion in a specific province.

When you input the command revolt [province ID], it initiates a revolt or rebellion in the specified province ID.

The province ID is a numerical identifier unique to each province in the game, and it can be located using the debug mode or from different online sources.

The rebellion thus triggered is not a scripted event, instead, it will be as if the unrest in the province had naturally led to a revolt.

This may consist of an uprising of the local population, but it can also lead to more severe forms of instability such as the emergence of a separatist faction that wishes to break away from your nation.

This command can be very useful if you wish to destabilize an enemy nation by causing internal strife or if you want to role-play a period of instability or unrest in your own nation.

However, take care that you're prepared to deal with the consequences as once a revolt starts, it has to be resolved either through military action or diplomatic means such as accepting the rebels' demands or increasing autonomy in the province.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
